Swan Valley and 'that' Concert

Another lovely evening at Moore River before we headed off to the Swan Valley.

Setup on a nice spot next to the vines.

We had a drive into Guildford to have lunch with the Patey's at the burnt out Guildford Hotel, now newly renovated...

Off to see Jimmy tonight...

Moore River adventure


We headed off for our annual trip to Moore River. We decided to add a couple of nights.
First stop was at the Pinjarra rest area.
The Premier Hotel Skimpys were on Thursday so missed them!
We had 4 other campers overnight. The trains kept a coming along the track, we even saw the Australind pass by. It was a lovely quiet night.
We were not the last to leave & took off after a leisurely start towards Camillo, Perth where we celebrated Courtney's 21st Birthday at lunch The Willow Pond, Canning vale. We had parked up at Rick, Roz & Marks for the night. The boys & I watched some soccer. In the morning we waved to Mark out of the caravan window (where we heard Mark say Goodbye, in a soft voice) as he was heading off for work @5.30am. Rick went out for his morning glory walk then came back home. We didn't hear Roz leave but it was after 6am. Departed after catching up with Rick and popped into New Age Beckenham for a technical adjustment. All sorted within the half hour & on the road to Moore River, Guilderton. We picked up some salad at Drovers along the way.

Arrived at Guilderton/Moore River just after 12.30, had an easy set up (aren't caravans just the best) and relaxed into our holiday. We added some fairy lights to our site which the children & adults love (also helps keeps them off our patch). The weather was perfect, with the usual sunset.
Tuesday we had a swim across the river with our noodles. The weather has sprung up with strong winds so time for a nanny nap & catching up with our emails. A quiet afternoon inside. The pelicans are the only ones in the water this afternoon.


Woke up to a fabulous sunny Wednesday with a very light breeze. We had a relaxing kayak up & back along the river which took for about an hour. We saw lots of birds, fish & a few hawks. Then noodled around in the river & cooled down. Ian is relaxing doing a crossword he found in the laundry. Off to make another cuppa now. We are really enjoying our view as we overlook the beach in front of the river.20190109_120619.jpg20190109_120502.jpg
